Please can someone advise on a good tutor in Cheltenham for the 11+. Thanks for the help!!!


We try to keep the forum as safe as possible - we don't allow tutors to be openly recommended, because it attracts posts with fake recommendations ('dodgy' advertising solely designed to solicit business on the internet).
It is also not unknown for unscrupulous competitors to 'plant' posts seeking to denigrate the opposition!

Genuine recommendations from forum members by PM only (private message) are permitted - but be aware of the possibility that someone who appears to be a 'helpful parent' offering advice may not be all they seem! There could be an ulterior motive.

Always treat recommendations from unknown persons with great caution.
However, we have many long standing members (check carefully the date of joining and number of posts) who make a very valuable contribution to the forum. If you receive a private recommendation from one of them, it could be worth considering.

Please let us know if you think anyone is abusing the system by soliciting for business or 'spamming'.
It's easy to report a possible problem - just click on the red exclamation mark that appears with every post and PM: Image

It may be too late now that it is the holidays, but I would look out for parents in your school playground whose children have passed the exams and then ask who they used. Some tutors are used to the teaching styles of their local primaries and already know where gaps and weaknesses will arise. Two tutors cover most of ds's school, and they work together to an extent, though with different styles, but it means that they know that our kids will be behind in geometry, so cover that themselves.

Parents will not discuss tutors at my children's school, it is a Very very competitive school and is the main feeder school into the grammar school that every parent wants to get their child into.

In my experience you need to wait until their children are in the 3rd term of year 6, and then ask "which tutor did you use". No point in asking anyone in your class (you are competing for places after all), it has to be parents who are leaving the school.
